Mrs. Jane Gale
   Died at the residence of her son, Mr. Jesse M. Gale, on the 6th instant, Mrs. Jane Gale age 76 years.
   Mrs. Gale was among the oldest citizens of Angola, having removed to this place about thirty-six years ago, when the site of our thriving town was a part of a wilderness, scarcely broken.
   About forty-four years ago her husband was taken from her by death, leaving a family of seven children under her care and depending upon her for support, five of whom are still living.  Her difficult task, however, was faithfully preformed.  Her loss is mourned by a large circle of relatives and her place in the community will be missed by many acquaintances.  A large company assembled at her funeral and followed her remains to their last earthly resting-place.  Thus another pioneer of this county has passed within, “That low green tent whose curtain never outward swings.”
